williamsburg health foundation logoThe Williamsburg Health Foundation announced the election of Elizabeth Fletcher Davis and Tom Tingle to the organization’s Board of Trustees last month at its Dec. 7 meeting.

Davis is the director of patient care services at Sentara Williamsburg Regional Medical and a lifelong resident of Williamsburg. She hopes to draw on both her long history in the community and her professional expertise to provide the board with a better understanding of the needs and challenges local patients and healthcare providers face.

Tingle is an architect at Guernsey Tingle Architects and specializes in understanding how the built environment impacts the health of the individual and the larger community. He has extensive experience working with the Greater Williamsburg Chamber & Tourism Alliance and the James City County Economic Development Authority, and will draw on that service to offer a new perspective on how the overall business climate and economy affect the health of the community and its people.

“We are delighted with the selection and election of our new board members,” Foundation President and CEO Jeanne Zeidler said. “These two individuals have an outstanding history of service to Greater Williamsburg, and we are confident that they can help us achieve our mission.”

Davis and Tingle replace outgoing board members Randall Foskey, Stephen Montgomery and Douglas Myers.

“We appreciate the contributions that each [outgoing member] made to our organization,” Zeidler said. “Randall’s communications and marketing expertise provided an invaluable perspective to board and committee discussions. With his experience of leading The Williamsburg Landing, Steve helped the foundation better understand the issues of the elderly. Finally, we are all going to miss one of our all-time, longest-serving members: Doug Myers. We are truly fortunate to have so many outstanding professionals share their time and talent with this Foundation and community.”
